Recruitment for TFAS summer programs is almost complete. With the help of a new website, DCinternships.org, and the “What type of DC intern are you?” Facebook application, the applications are rolling in. To allow more time for students to complete their applications, TFAS has extended its final deadline for its D.C. summer programs to March 26. Meanwhile, the deadline for the Legal Studies Institute has been extended to April 3, and April 15 is the priority deadline for students interested in attending the Capital Semester program in the fall.
Having received positive feedback regarding the campus, classrooms and technology at George Mason University from this spring’s Capital Semester students and faculty, TFAS is anxious to welcome a new class of students to D.C. for the summer. And with summer just around the bend TFAS staff have been working to square away all the details such as coursework and internship placements.
One key detail that has been arranged is student housing. This year students will be living within walking distance from the Metro in furnished apartment-style rooms centrally located in George Washington University’s Ivory Tower Residence Hall in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood of Washington. The new location will be convenient for students as they travel to their internships and classes at Mason. The apartments are steps away from the State Department, Kennedy Center and National Mall.
Additionally, TFAS has finalized a new partnership with Georgetown University Law Center for its 2013 Legal Studies Institute. This summer, students participating in LSI have the choice to receive credit from Ohio Northern University Pettit School of Law or Georgetown Law for an additional fee.
If you know students that might be interested in attending a TFAS program this summer, please direct them to DCinternships.org or nominate them yourself at DCinternships.org/Nominate. Nominated students will receive priority scholarship and admissions consideration from our selection committee.
